When we travel to a new town, we usually like to visit several different eating establishments, trying a little bit at many places.
Sometimes, however, we find ourselves patronizing the same joint when we like a place enough. There's something comfortable about frequenting a place enough so the staff recognizes you. It makes you feel a bit at home.
In Kampot, Cambodia, Epic Arts Cafe is where we often found ourselves for breakfast. Not only do your dollars get you high quality clean food, they fund an important mission as well.
When planning our grand post-Korea travels, we knew we wanted to do some volunteering along the way. Jumping from site to site and constantly being on the go will exhaust us quickly. Being just a tourist isn’t appealing either — to better understand the environment, we wanted to immerse ourselves in it by connecting with locals and making a contribution, as much as possible and where appropriate.
Volunteering can do more harm than good sometimes, and we did a lot of reading on this topic. One quick read we recommend is the The Volunteer Traveler’s Handbook. So we try to keep all this in mind when seeking opportunities to donate our time.
That being said, we recently volunteered on an organic farm in the mountains of northern Thailand.
